What Happened To Adrian Peterson ExNFL Star Held Over Alleged Domestic Ab
What happened to former NFL star Adrian Peterson? What happened to the star of the Vikings? The former Texans running back was arrested Sunday at the Los Angeles International Airport for felony domestic violence. The incident took place on the plane during the Super Bowl week. Ashley Peterson posted a message to her Instagram account asking for privacy following the altercation.
The arrest occurred after the flight he was on to Houston was reportedly diverted by a domestic dispute. According to TMZ, the couple had argued on the plane, and Peterson was arrested. It is unknown what triggered the fight, but it’s clear the two disagreed. The alleged victim was his wife Ashley Brown. Despite the arrest, Peterson will likely walk free.
Earlier this year, Peterson was suspended from the NFL and fined $4,000. His suspension was later reduced to one year. In 2014, he was arrested on felony child abuse for allegedly spanking his four-year-old son. The four-year-old boy suffered cuts and bruises all over his body, including his scrotum. After pleading no contest to the charge, he was released on $50,000 bail and was ordered to perform 80 hours of community service.
